Heaven on Earth for Animal Lovers

Our 2nd time visiting Giraffe Ranch, got to say, this place is like Heaven on Earth for us animal lovers! They take exquisite care of these cherished animals. They are so beautiful and look amazing! They are also quite happy judging by how well they are reproducing! The new drive thru tour was fabulous and I got to see the place from a different perspective as the segway tour from before. Oh, and don't forget to add the lemur and otter feedings! OMG, they are sooooooo cute! I am in love!

One of the best animal experiences by far!

If you want to get a more personal experience with animals, this is definitely the place to go! We signed up for the Safari Tour to feed the giraffes and lemurs and it was amazing! You literally walk into a cage with the lemurs and get to feed them right out of your hand. The giraffes come right up to the truck and take the cabbage right out of your hands as well. The truck gets so close to these animals and you feel like you are right next to them. It is such a wild experience and I can’t wait to visit again!

Our day at the Giraffe ranch

Informative, educational and fun. The interaction with gentle creatures like the Lemurs and Giraffes made our day. A clean, well maintained facility where it soon becomes obvious that love for the animals is primary!

Amazing, Once in a Lifetime Experience

I went with a group from a local bank. What an incredible day! You can get face to face with sweet giraffes, camels, etc. Feeding the animals was just awesome. The husband and wife who own the ranch are personable and very knowledgeable. In addition to playing with the animals, I learned a lot. I recommend this excursion for all ages. I just can't say enough about this place. The animals are clearly very happy. It was a delight to get to know them up close. It was well worth the drive from Clearwater.

An incredible time

An incredible close up experience with guides who know and are interested in passing on that information. This is so worth the money and your time. A great experience.

Great time!

We enjoyed the tour! The owners are so knowledgeable about the animals and places around the world. We first sat down for a little education about horns and teeth and then we went in to feed the lemurs. They were so cute and fun! We then went on the llama tour. If you have never walked a llama, I highly recommend the experience. We saw tons of animals that you would typically see in the wild on a safari. We came back and hopped in the truck for a drive to feed the giraffes. They have two babies. They are beautiful animals. It was a fun adventure.

Amazing family experience - once in a lifetime!

My mom surprised us with this trip for Christmas. It was incredible to be that close and personal with the giraffes - and to hand feed them cabbage and sweet potatoes. The owners are so knowledgeable and present everything with a refreshing level of humor.
